Historic small town character, incomparable natural beauty, top notch public schools, world class arts & entertainment, culinary and retail scenes that rival those of much larger cities. We all benefit from a local economy driven by hundreds of unique small businesses.
That small business community is hurting deeply during this time of the COVID-19 crisis. Many business owners have not found the words or platform to ask for help.
The Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce has been supporting the collective needs of this small business community for nearly 70 years. This time is no different. Therefore we are establishing the “COVID-19 Mill Valley Business Fund” to provide immediate and direct cash grants to as many as we can in Mill Valley. Although these will be modest grants, they aim to ease some of the financial hardships the current crisis is presenting.
$1000 grants will be given out to Mill Valley small businesses on a first come, first served basis as funds are raised. We hope we can help all applicants with your generosity!
Qualifications for receiving a grant:
- Brick and mortar retail, service or nonprofit in Mill Valley (94941)
- 10 or fewer full-time equivalent employees as of Jan. 2020
- No existing GoFundMe campaign
Not a nickel of the funds raised will go to the Mill Valley Chamber. This is one more way we are trying to help an incredible community in pain. After you donate, please spread the word! GO HERE for more information and an application.
